Transplant Games of America 

The Transplant Games have an amazingly rich and memorable 33-year history of bringing together a community of individuals who have been touched by the miracle of donation and transplantation.

Organ, eye, and tissue recipients are joined by living donors, donor families, patients waiting for transplant, and professionals from the donation and transplant world. Caregivers, supporters, and fans attend to add a festive turn to the six-day event that celebrates life and raises awareness of the need for more organs.

The Games include over 20 competitions for recipients and living donors along with 60+ special events throughout the week that provide opportunities to celebrate donors, attend lectures and workshops, and interact with friends and associates.

As part of a robust schedule, the Transplant Games honor the lasting legacy of donors who gave the ultimate gift of life, celebrate the ever-growing living donation world, and salute the recipients who gather to demonstrate to all that life-restoring transplantation has made a difference in their lives.

Whether your interest is the intense competition, the deep and meaningful tributes, or the educational programs, the Transplant Games has something for you.


To increase awareness of the life-restoring importance of organ, eye and tissue donation through the lives of recipients, living donors, donor families and those awaiting a transplant. To involve the entire transplant community including caregivers, donation and transplant professionals and other related organizations, in a shared mission to highlight the benefits of transplantation.


To increase the number of potential donors, state-by-state and on the National Donate Life Registry, by supporting existing campaigns and harnessing the energy and drive of the transplant community.

To advocate for the greater transplant community through the Transplant Games, TransplantNATION magazine, the Transplant Community Coalition, and other initiatives supporting educational programs and services, promotional activities and partnerships.
